Dad's Birthday Card

My goodness, what a busy time we've had lately....even more so than normal!! I've had lots of fun making orders for friends, have loads on at school/nursery, 4 family birthdays, Scott's been working extra hours AND we're getting work done in the garden! So, that's my excuse for neglecting my blog and my lovely blogs buddies. It looks like it will remain extra busy for the next month too, but I'll try to increase my blogging time, if I can.

Anyway, when my sister and I were at school, my mam and dad had a VW Caravanette that we (very affectionately) called Tess. She was orange and cream and made for lots of lovely days out, weekends away and "camping trips" in the drive!! So when I saw this little stamp in Hobbycraft (for only £1!), I had to buy it.

I played about for a while, stamping with black ink and colouring in, then decided to see how they looked with my Distress Inks. I loved the colours, so went with this idea for my dad's birthday card. The papers are Kaisercraft On the Move and I love the colour combination.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
